Omaha, Neb.. May 2.—The 24th quad
rennial General Conference of the Method
ist Episcopal Church wus called to order at
Boyd's Opera House this morning by
Bishop Bowman. Mr. S. Monroe wus
elected permanent secretary. The entire
morning session was devoted to a discus
aiou of the )
gutes separate
•oposition to seat tho lay dcle
) from the clergy.
During the discussion, Dr. John Lana
bun of Baltimore, said lie wished to con
gratulate the laymen upon the demand,
lie had always believed that the luy
bad been at great disadvantage '
among the ministers in '
I in sitting
.... , the conference.
He believed that tho laymen would have
influence and power in the confer
ence by being seuted separately, lie be
lieved that the ministers would be pleased
to have the laymen seated separately if
they wished to nave it so.
Mr. Sinkle of Kentucky, vigorously com
batted the idea of separate sealing "I do
not congratulate the laymen upon this
demand for separate seating,'*
Sitikle. "I know that
the other night and 71
voted for the separate seating,
y wanted the sheep and the goats sep
arated. Some thought they should he
called sheep und lambs. Well. I want to
plead for the lambs. 1 want the laymen
und ministers seated together. I want the
adviee of the ministers and I want the
ministers to get advice occasionally from
the laymen. If we are seated separately it
will have the apperunce of antagonism.

the laymen from the ministers. I don't
want to be separated from the ministers. I

Dr. J. M. Buckley, editor of tiie Ctirin
fiaa Advocate, of New York city, said tho
object of giving laymen representation in
the conference was not to increase the
size of the body, but to secure the assist
anceoi laymen in the framing of the laws
of the church. Hud the laymen been given
a fair chance to exercise equal power with
the ministers? Dr. Buckley thought not.
He recounted the history of conference
legislation upon the subject, and held that
the laymen hud been handicapped by lail
ing to get u separate vole in the conference
when they hud demanded it. Nine-tenths
of the laymen," said he, "attend hut
general conference, but the ministerial
delegates usually go to conference alter
erence, and the bishops who preside
know them. The bishops are not ac
quainted with the laymen, and when they
anse on the floor of the conference along
with half a dozen ministers, what is the
usual result ? The presiding officer usually

it was simply a question of privilege for
the laymen and not of compulsion.

S'. H. Roof of Buffalo, a layman, spoke
opposition to the separate seating
scheme. He wished to see harmony
unity all through, and he believed
separate seating would result in a sem
blance, at least, of discord and a lack of
unity of purpose.
Ex-Governor Evans of Colorado stated
that somebody had evidently been scared
before they were hurt. There seemed to
be a little apprehension that they were
all members of the same church He
could not understand why the ministers
were afraid that tho laymen think it wise

secure it. Many siicctatorsdrifted into the
hall and appropriated scats set aside for '
delegates and would not give them up, and |
it became necessary to call the roll to dis
cover tho wolves who had gotten into the
fold. To relieve the monotony Dr. Palmer
announced that Dr. Stiles White, sitting I
among the laymen, hud lost his pocket- i
book, containing $20 and a ticket. This
raised quite a ripple of laughter, Dr.
Palmer threatening to eject any reporter,
who would publish tho fact, whereupon

while Delaware had squatted on their

Several delegates objected to the seventh
section, which gave the bishops the power
to appoint the committee on judiciary, it
was laid aside and the other sections were
adopted as the plan of organization. It was
decided to meet at 3 o'clock und organize
the committees.
An invitation from Lincoln, Neb., to

Bishop Merrill culled up the report of
the committee on constitution appointed
four vears ago. The report was read by
Dr. f'. 11. Neely of Philadelphia. After
giving a brief review of the various meet
ings of tho committee Dr. Neely presented
the changes und recommendations sug
gested in the report. Among other things
suggested was a change on the arrange
nt the Discipline. No materiul
change was recommended in the rules or
the wording of the Discipline, but Hie
committee thought the book could
ranged to much better advantage.
The report suggested tliut the date for
opening the General Conference be fixed
the first Wednesday iu May every four
years instead of the first duv of May.
It recommended that the ministerial and
luy delegates vote together in the General
Conference on all questions except those
intended to make a change in the orguuic
law of the church. At present the minis

gates lolluw. This plan nas become quite

The report recommends that no annual
conference shall bo organized with less

Success in Filling Mail Orders,
like success in selling goods over the counters, is clue to
thorough organization, skilled clerks, and careful attention to
the wishes of the buyer.
Whether the customer comes in person to the counters,
or lives at a remote distance from the store, the service, in
every essential respect, is identical. The same effort to give
satisfaction is made in the one case as in the other, and should
goods fail to be just what is wanted they can be returned,
and others will promptly be sent.
As the result of such methods, our Mail Order Depart
ment has reached its present dimensions, and is constantly
growing greater and more comprehensive.
We solicit the patronage of shoppers by mail, having
full confidence in our power to give entire satisfaction.
